    I am moving to lander from valdez alaska and interested in joining your organization, do I need to attened a meeting to join or can it be done online and receive the orientation at the next meeting.

      There’s a form on the website that you can fill out. Follow the instructions and mail it in with a check. Dues are pretty reasonable, and if you’re an NRA member they are even cheaper.

      The range is quite nice. If you want to use the indoor range, you’ll need an orientation. If you need a tour of the outdoor range, you can let Charlie know and I’m sure he’d be happy to show you the place, but otherwise you can just enjoy it.

  4. William L Hayes says:

    I am a single household. Do I pay the same dues as a family?
    How much would be my dues for Aug thru Oct as a member of the NRA?

  5. Ashton Simms says:

    I moved to Rock springs and this seems to be the closest club/organization to me that is recognized by the CMP. I am in college. Do I need to be have residency first? And if it’s just me what is the fee?

    • Jeff Wendt says:

      Ashton– No, you do not need to be a resident of Wyoming. Individual rate is the same as family rate, but still quite affordable. Look under Club Information – Joining the LVSA ( for information on joining. Rates are $80 per year, but NRA membership takes $25 off, so $55. A work credit further reduces the rate.

    Do you all have a new member application for 2020 or can the 2018 application work?
